My goal is to make a complex process easy, and to provide my customers with information that is presented clearly, so they can make informed decisions about their mortgage loan. I am a long-time resident of the Hudson Valley, and currently live with my family in Saugerties, NY. I began my banking career over 25 years ago as a Mortgage Loan Underwriter, working at both community and regional banks before joining Rondout Savings Bank as a Senior Residential Loan Originator. My decision to join Rondout Savings came from a belief that a community bank is best able to serve the needs of my customers. We work with local attorneys to ensure that the mortgage experience is both friendly and professional. Our underwriting and loan approvals are done locally, allowing closings to happen quickly.
I am proud to be part of the team at Rondout Savings bank, and to help support Rondout’s “Dividends to the Community” program, which donates 10% of the bank’s profits each year to the communities we serve.
Each time I meet with someone who is looking to get a mortgage to buy or build a home or refinance their existing mortgage or make improvements, I am confident that Rondout Savings Bank offers the right financing solution that I can deliver in a friendly , knowledgeable and timely manner. My 20 years of experience in the Banking industry provides the skills necessary to tailor the right solution for the client, regardless of the need. I am a Kingston High School graduate and a 1998 Marist College graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in Finance. My dedication to residential lending has been recognized by Hudson Valley Magazine as the 2014-2016 “5 Star Professional Award Winner” and the 2015 Who’s Who recipient.
I currently live in Highland, NY and look forward to the opportunity to help you achieve your homeownership goals.
